This is the terrifying moment a drug-crazed driver opens fire on police – then smashes head-on into their patrol car.
Worachai Pawatporn, 32, was spotted after police received reports of a man driving erratically in Nakhon Ratchasima.
He suddenly emerged from a side-street and fired at cops on mopeds – before speeding away onto a motorway.
Shockingly, he then turns round and drives into oncoming traffic as an officer lets of two rounds from a handgun at the car but he ploughs head on into a police vehicle.
The patrol car’s dash cam captured the dramatic chase with Worachai, who was arrested and admitted popping several meth amphetamine tablets.
A Royal Thai Police spokesman said: ”Mr Worachai has been charged with drugs offences, handling a gun without registration, trying to kill a police officer and driving dangerously.
”He had taken meth amphetamine and was speeding around the roads.
”He has confessed to these offences and faces four to ten years in prison. A court will decide later what the full sentence will be. He has been remanded in custody and admits the charges.”
Worachai’s white Toyota was written off after the smash.
